31DC2012: Day 23 Inspired by a Movie

I'm here with Day 23 of the 31 Day Challenge and the film I chose is Watchmen. We all know how I love everything superhero so this was the obvious choice as I've exhausted most of the other ones. If you haven't seen the film, watch it!
This is the first really detailed freehand nail art I've done for absolutely ages and I love it! I wish I had more time these days to do nail art like this. I miss it!

Don't forget to stop by Nails and Noms and Let Them Have Polish to see how they're getting on with their challenges.

Thumb to pinky: Silk Spectre, Dr Manhattan, Watchmen, Rorschach (kind of!), The Comedian

All the details were freehanded with nail art brushes and here's a run down of the polishes I used...
Urban Outfitters Denim Blue, Cult Nails Quench, Essie Mezmerised, Collection 2000 Sherbet Lemons, W7 Black, Barry M White, Deborah Lippmann Fashion*.
I also used white and black acrylic paint here and there for the small details.



  1. Love these! A great film, though I much prefer the book :)

  2. I love these nails! Watchmen is such an awesome movie and this nail art is SO AMAZING!

  3. Such awesome art! The movie is a pretty good adaptation of an immensely complex and intricate comic work.

  4. Love your version! NIce work.
    Here's one I did a few weeks ago for a friend, if you're interested!

  5. Watchmen has to be one of my top 5 favorite superhero movies. Especially the Dr. Manhattan sequence -it's soooo good! I know fans of the graphic novels would say otherwise, but I don't care! Great mani!!

  6. I didn't see this movie but your nails are amazing.

  7. I haven't seen the movie but I love your freehand work.

  8. This is a great movie! Your nails look fantastic! Well done :)
